Terumo Cardiovascular Systems has released the X-Coated™ Capiox[sup ®] RX05 or Baby RX™ oxygenator. This oxygenator is designed for neonate and infant patient populations. The device was integrated into our current perfusion practice and our clinical observations are described here. The Baby RX™ has a prime volume of 43 mL with a maximum flow of 1.5 L/min. The integrated hardshell venous reservoir has independent venous and cardiotomy filters, as well as a very low minimal operating level of 15 mL. A variety of options provide exceptional versatility for the device. The Baby RX™ proves to be a low-prime, high-flow oxygenator, enabling us to use it on a wide range of pediatric patients. It will be a useful tool for reducing our neonate and infant circuit priming volumes.
